(Fort Frances, ON.) With a New Year upon us, starting January 1, drivers in Ontario will have to wait until a pedestrian has reached the other side of a designated school crossing or pedestrian crossover, or face a fine between $150 and $500. The new law requires drivers to yield the entire width of the road to the pedestrian, instead of half the road, as was previously the case. Also, with winter upon us drivers are asked to take the time to clean the windows of frost and snow as failure to do could result in a ticket. The Highway Traffic Act states, “No person shall drive a motor vehicle upon a highway unless the windshield and the windows on either side of the compartment containing the steering wheel are in such a condition as to afford the driver a clear view to the front and side of the motor vehicle; and unless the rear window is in such a condition as to afford the driver a clear view to the rear of the motor vehicle”, failure to do so could result in a fine of $85.
